Progress Report . . . and a Reminder

Posted by on January 20, 2010 in blocks | 3 comments

First the reminder . . . SUNDAY is the deadline for making Tic-Tac-Toe blocks if you want to receive the February Sneak Peek email message. Note to self: I need to get busy with a couple more sample blocks and the guidelines.

Quilt Design DetailAlthough it has no practical use, except maybe as a too-long too-skinny table runner, I decided I wanted to quilt the Block Lotto banner.

Here’s a detail photo. Check my blog, sophie junction, for a longer view . . . and to tell me about your favorite part of quilt making.

I decide to use a 4″ border quilting template from my collection . . . even though the only border on the banner that’s 4″ is the bottom. So I edited as I marked on the top and added some of the design elements in between (and inside) the letters.

I’ve decided it needs a blue plaid border cut on the bias . . . now, to see if I have anything that will work in my stash.


  1. Augh!!! Can't find camera! I am worried I might have left it at my parents house and mom's on a quilting vacation with her girlfreinds, and the idea that dad might look for it and send it to me has me laughing so hard in my head I can't think! Hopefully I'll find it or borrow someones so I can play this month, I made 9 great blocks!! Two I want to keep =)

  2. You still have almost two weeks before the end of the month and the drawing, so don't panic.

    The photo doesn't have to be a masterpiece … even a cell phone photo will work. (Although, we all enjoy getting a good look at the blocks so we can plan what we're going to do with them when we WIN!)

  3. Ooo, can't wait to see what's in store for February!
